  • Thin Coats: Apply thin, even coats of paint, allowing each layer to dry thoroughly before applying the next coat. This technique will result in a smoother, more durable finish.
  • Drying Time: Allow adequate drying time between coats as recommended on the product label, the paint will be touch dry fairly quickly but allow at least two hours before you get tempted! Rushing the process may lead to an uneven finish or reduced durability.
